Post Workout Coconut Protein Pancakes

Yesterday while I was cleaning my fridge I came across my coconut flour bag that I had forgotten about and had not used in a while. I used to make these quiet often when I was building muscle and eating lots of calories but I haven’t thought about making them ever since I started my contest prep diet. When I saw them I remembered that these are low calories and so easy to make! I can’t believe I didn’t I try to incorporate them into my meals before!! They fit my post workout meal macros set from my coach and they’re even perfect for refeed days! 
I posted these before HERE but these don’t have peanut butter but you’re more than welcome to use this version if you don’t need to watch the amount of fat in this meal. 
Guess who’s going to be eating this at least once or twice a week?

Ingredients:

5 Tbs coconut flour (I get mine at Sprouts)
1/4 Tsp Baking powder
5 Packets (or to taste) stevia/splenda/ or sweetener of choice
Tiny pinch of salt
7 Egg whites (or 3 eggs~ Note: this will change calories)
1/4 Cup water (may use less depending on consistency of batter…add slowly until pancake consistency forms)

Method:

  • In a medium size bowl, combine all of the ingredients, except for the water, and begin to mix. (It will be very lumpy/thick at this point…don’t worry!)
  • Begin adding water slowly, a little at a time, stirring until a thick pancake batter forms, (you can also use a blender, hand-held mixer, or immersion blender to mix up ingredients with ease) *Note: Batter will be a little thicker than typical pancake batter, but should still be ‘thin’ enough to pour onto a griddle.
  • Meanwhile, heat a nonstick griddle (or nonstick skillet) coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Spoon about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto griddle. Turn pancakes over when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked.
  • Serve warm with Walden calorie free pancake syrup or non fat greek yogurt for extra protein.

I found my coconut flour at Sprouts but I’m sure you can find at any grocery store in the Health Foods section.
